7 x 5" original oil
I love the contrast in this painting between the deep purples and transparent whites. The punch of orange in the background adds some spice.
It's all sketched out with a pastel pencil. I used grid crosshairs on the photo and on the masonite to help me get it right.
It's taking shape: I painted the lightest areas first because I was afraid if I didn't, they'd be muddy.
I think tubes of paint are fabulous. Look at them all in a row. Yummy.
This painting is on 1/8" masonite. It will be a cinch to pop into a 5x7" frame; otherwise, just display it on a little easel or leaning against something.
